Penser moins pour être heureux by Steven C. Hayes Summary

Nous dépensons beaucoup d’énergie pour combattre l’insatisfaction, la peur et la souff rance causées par les obstacles et les épreuves que nous rencontrons.

The Emotional Eating Workbook by Carolyn Coker Ross Summary

When we constantly feel hungry and overeat, sometimes it’s not about the food. In this important book, a weight management expert presents the proven-effective Anchor Weight Management System to help people finally end their struggles with emotional eating and weight gain. For over fifty years, nutritional and medical scientists have dissected the problem of obesity. The result of this half-century of investigation has been a series of recommendations about what and how much to eat, and an unintended consequence is that we’ve been deprived of the joy of eating. From low-fat diets to the no-carb craze, the market has been continually flooded with one assortment of fad products and diets after another. So, when does it end? If you’re struggling with emotional overeating and are trying to lose weight, you should know that you don’t need to deny yourself certain foods. In The Emotional Eating Workbook, you'll learn about the real psychological needs that underlie your food cravings, how to meet those needs in positive ways, be mindful of your body, and find the deep satisfaction many overeaters seek in food. It’s not about food. It’s about how food is used to self-soothe, numb ourselves against the pain of living, or self-medicate in coping with stress and unresolved emotions. The Anchor Program™ approach detailed in this book is not about dieting. It’s about being anchored to your true, authentic self. When you find your unique anchor, you will relate better to your body, you'll know intuitively how to feed your body, and you'll reach the weight that’s right for you.

Embodiment and the Treatment of Eating Disorders: The Body as a Resource in Recovery by Catherine Cook-Cottone Summary

Tools for the clinician to help clients turn their bodies into resources for healing from eating disorders. Embodiment refers to the lived attunement of the inner and outer experience of self. Cognitions are aligned with the sensing and feeling body. Further, in an attuned experience of self, positive embodiment is maintained by internally focused tools, such as self-care practices that support physiological health, emotional well-being, and effective cognitive functioning. For those who suffer from eating disorders, this is not the case; in fact, the opposite is true. Disordered thinking, an unattuned sense of self, and negative cognitions abound. Turning this thinking around is key to client resilience and treatment successes. Catherine Cook-Cottone provides tools for clinicians working with clients to restore their healthy selves and use their bodies as a positive resource for healing and long-term health. The book goes beyond traditional treatments to talk about mindful self-care, mindful eating, yoga, and other practices designed to support self-regulation.

The Anorexia Workbook by Michelle Heffner,Georg H. Eifert Summary

Statistics suggests that as many as 2.5 percent of American women suffer from anorexia; of these, further research indicates that one in ten of these will die from the disorder. This is the only book available that addresses the particular needs of anorexics with the techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a revolutionary new psychotherapy. The authors of this book are pioneering researchers in the field of ACT, with numerous research articles to their credit Despite ever-widening media attention and public awareness of the problem, American women continue to suffer from anorexia nervosa in greater numbers than ever before. This severe psychophysiological condition-characterized by an abnormal fear of becoming obese, a persistent unwillingness to eat, and severe compulsion to lose weight-is particularly difficult to treat, often because the victims are unwilling to seek help. The Anorexia Workbook demonstrates that efforts to control and stop anorexia may do more harm than good. Instead of focusing efforts on judging impulses associated with the disorder as 'bad' or 'negative,' this approach encourages sufferers to mindfully observe these feelings without reacting to them in a self-destructive way. Guided by this more compassionate, more receptive frame of mind, the book coaches you to employ various acceptance-based coping strategies. Structured in a logical, step-by-step progression of exercises, the workbook first focuses on providing you with a new understanding of anorexia and the ways you might have already tried to control the problem. Then the book progresses through techniques that teach how to use mindfulness to deal with out-of-control thoughts and feelings, how to identify choices that lead to better heath and quality of life, and how to redirect the energy formerly spent on weight loss into actions that will heal the body and mind. Although this book is written specifically as self-help for anorexia sufferers, it includes a clear and informative chapter on when you need to seek professional treatment as well as advice on what to look for in a therapist.

Fulfilled by Alexandra MacKillop Summary

Today's culture has distorted the way we women view our bodies. We are hyper-critical, obsessed with weight loss, and distracted by the countless advertisements we see to eat, exercise, and dress differently. But God does not call you to be thinner or to follow a perfectly clean diet plan. Rather, God longs for you to embrace your body, eat with freedom, and live with a deep sense of confidence that you (and your body) are loved exactly as you are. In Fulfilled, nutrition expert Alexandra MacKillop explores physical, mental, and spiritual health through a non-diet lens, encouraging you to respect your body, honor your hunger, and embrace the unique size and shape that God created for you. Fulfilled provides tangible steps toward changing your beliefs about food and your body. After examining the ways dieting harms a person's physical and spiritual health, the book lays out a more intuitive framework for eating that emphasizes mindfulness, satisfaction, and surrender. As you learn to embrace your body, you'll be set free from the fear of losing control. As you grow in your understanding of God's love for you and your natural shape, you'll be released from the shame of not conforming to a certain physical type. As you develop your knowledge of intuitive eating, you'll realize that you can love and eat foods of all types. With Alexandra as your guide, you'll learn how to enjoy food without sabotaging your fitness goals, honor the unique body God created for you, and live out a life of love and freedom--all under the umbrella of grace.

Le cerveau adolescent by Frances E. Jensen,Amy Ellis Nutt Summary

En se basant sur ses recherches, ses connaissances et son expérience clinique, la docteure Frances E. Jensen, neuroscientifique de réputation internationale et mère de deux garçons, ouvre une perspective révolutionnaire sur le cerveau adolescent. Sa remarquable acuité se traduit par de nombreux conseils pratiques pour les parents et les adolescents eux-mêmes. Pendant de nombreuses années, les scientifiques ont considéré le cerveau adolescent comme un cerveau adulte miniature avec moins de kilomètres au compteur, parce qu’ils pensaient la croissance cérébrale presque terminée à la puberté. Depuis dix ans, la neurologie et les neurosciences prouvent que des étapes extrêmement importantes pour le développement du cerveau se déroulent pendant l’adolescence. Le Cerveau adolescent explique pourquoi les adolescents sont fragilisés face aux drogues et il révèle l’impact du multitâche sur la concentration et les capacités d’apprentissage. Enfin,il examine les conséquences du stress sur la santé mentale pendant et après l’adolescence. Traduit de l’anglais par Isabelle Crouzet

Handbook of Positive Body Image and Embodiment by Niva Piran Summary

For five decades, negative body image has been a major focus of study due to its association with psychological and social morbidity, including eating disorders. However, more recently the body image construct has broadened to include positive ways of living in the body, enabling greater understanding of embodied well-being, as well as protective factors and interventions to guide the prevention and treatment of eating disorders. Handbook of Positive Body Image and Embodiment is the first comprehensive, research-based resource to address the breadth of innovative theoretical concepts and related practices concerning positive ways of living in the body, including positive body image and embodiment. Presenting 37 chapters by world-renowned experts in body image and eating behaviors, this state-of-the-art collection delineates constructs of positive body image and embodiment, as well as social environments (such as families, peers, schools, media, and the Internet) and therapeutic processes that can enhance them. Constructs examined include positive embodiment, body appreciation, body functionality, body image flexibility, broad conceptualization of beauty, intuitive eating, and attuned sexuality. Also discussed are protective factors, such as environments that promote body acceptance, personal safety, diversity, and activism, and a resistant stance towards objectification, media images, and restrictive feminine ideals. The handbook also explores how therapeutic interventions (including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Dissonance, and many more) and public health and policy initiatives can inform scholarly, clinical, and prevention-based work in the field of eating disorders.

Le Pouvoir des petits riens by Rick Hanson Summary

Le cerveau se modifie au fil de notre vie Petit rappel : la façon dont nous pensons, parlons, vivons façonne notre cerveau. Si l'on est toujours focalisé sur les soucis, la colère, l'esprit critique, alors notre cerveau développera les structures neuronales et les dynamiques de l'anxiété, de l'autodénigrement et de la réactivité aux autres. En revanche, si l'on incite son esprit à prendre conscience qu'on est bien dans l'instant présent, à voir ce qui est bon et à lâcher prise, le cerveau prendra peu à peu la forme de la force tranquille, de la confiance en soi et de la paix intérieure. C'est ce qu'on appelle la " plasticité cérébrale ", cette capacité du cerveau à se reprogrammer, à créer de nouvelles connexions tout au long de notre vie. Un livre pour cultiver son jardin intérieur Ce livre propose de pratiquer divers exercices pour " muscler " en quelque sorte, le sentiment de sécurité, l'estime de soi, la résilience, le bien-être, la lucidité, l'altruisme, la paix intérieure. Il s'agit de choses simples à faire quotidiennement, souvent dans notre tête. Pour prendre un exemple, selon des études scientifiques, être pleinement conscient (l'un des exercices de ce livre) renforce l'activation du cortex préfrontal gauche (qui freine les émotions négatives), donc améliore l'humeur et inhibe l'activité de l'amygdale, la sonnette d'alarme du cerveau. De même, se témoigner de la compassion renforce la résilience et atténue les ruminations négatives. La loi des petits riens Lorsqu'une pratique est pénible, la plupart des gens y renoncent. Ce livre propose donc des exercices brefs et simples, à effectuer plusieurs fois par jour – par exemple " percevoir la beauté des choses " –, ou de simples attitudes, comme " être moins angoissé par ses imperfections " ou " ne pas se sentir personnellement visé ". Les pratiques sont modestes en soi, mais leur effet est cumulatif. C'est la loi des petits riens : les changements emmagasinés dans la structure neuronale sous l'effet de l'activité mentale vous engagent dans la voie du bien-être. Une chose à la fois Ce livre propose de se focaliser sur une pratique fondamentale à la fois. La vie moderne est tellement intense et agitée que ne garder qu'une seule chose à l'esprit est en soi un défi.

Fast Girl by Suzy Favor Hamilton Summary

L’OUVRAGE - Autobiographie Suzy avait tout, la beauté, le talent, de grands sponsors, une famille, trois participations aux Jeux Olympiques et un jeune mari aimant. Mais pour échapper à son mal de vivre et à une terrible anxiété, elle est devenue Kelly et s’est créé une double vie à Las Vegas... Je me concentrais sur ce que je pensais être le look idéal pour une escort girl de choix. J’étais maintenant la numéro 2 des hôtesses les plus demandées de Vegas. Mon ambition absolue était de devenir la numéro 1. Il fallait que mon apparence fasse la différence... Naturellement, mon ascension a été rapide. Pas assez rapide à mon goût, bien entendu. Mes séances d’UV donnaient l’impression que mon corps avait baigné dans la lumière du désert. Les robes moulantes que je portais continuaient de décroître en taille, à cause de mon manque d’appétit. Dans un jour comme celui-là, je voulais juste me nourrir de mon exaltation. Ce jour-là, je portais une robe moulante rouge vif conçue par mon créateur préféré, Hervé Léger. Elle m’allait comme une seconde peau. Je n’avais pas envie de retourner à mon ancienne vie. Ni aujourd’hui, ni jamais. Révélée par les médias, l’histoire de Suzy Favor Hamilton a stupéfié l’Amérique.
